Nice alpine setting although a bit difficult to get to if you don't have car. Service is great and food is excellent - the restaurant is not overly formal but smart nevertheless. Wine list is excellent. Good value for money - one of my favourites in Megeve

This is our second time but will be our last. Although the staff are friendly, the food is good and the setting lovely I am fed up with their system of 2 sittings per evening. The second sitting of 930pm is too late for me and you would think the first sitting would be fine with a couple of hours... More

Lovely restaurant, service impecable. This restaurant is located at the end of a road up the mountain therefore if they weren't providing very good food, reasonable prices & service they wouldnt be there. 3 course plat do jour mid week at under 30 euros is exceptional value for Megeve & tasty too!

The Chef cooks very tasty dishes. Went several times, with various different friends: everyone always enjoy. I particularly enjoy the veal and the soufflé as a desert (a killing)!

A little way out of town in Leutaz but very close to the Flocons de Sel. Simply cooked mountain restaurant with good food. Nice wine list which was not expensive.

We had lunch on a Saturday after walking up to the restaurant which takes about 1 hour or a bit more from Megeve. We ordered a la carte and I was extremely disappointed! I ordered the Foie de Volaille en terrine maison which had no flavor and was supposed to be served with confiture d'oignions aux figues, well what was... More

In a secluded area just five minutes out of the crowds of Megeve this magic rustic restaurant serves divine food at very low prices especially for midday .Located at the end of a dead end road close to the famous restaurant " la Sauvageonne " which is quite more dear, this wood cabin with its cosy atmosphere makes you feel...

We stayed in Megeve during Christmas time 2014 and we visited this restaurant with my family. The food was classic french and the environment was a typical upscale refuge. A must in Megeve. Will return most definitely.
